Ten Artists/Bands That Remind Me of High School

In my usual way, I made this a little more difficult by restricting it to artists/bands that I have a reasonable chance of hearing now — they can't remind me of high school if I don't hear them, now can they? — either because they still get airplay or because I own one or more of their CDs. When I think back to what I listened to most in high school, for example, the first name that comes to mind is (brace yourself) John Denver, but luckily he never gets played, at least on the stations I listen to.

If a couple of bands seem to have wandered in from someone else's list, it's because my oldest friend's tastes ran (and run) to considerably harder rock than mine. And my very first boyfriend played in a rock band: I can still see him leap into the air, land and belt out with great enthusiasm, "I wanna rock and roll all night and party e-ve-ry day!" It was a short-lived romance. I believe he now lives in Vermont and works in software.

  1. Elton John
  2. Linda Ronstadt
  3. Gordon Lightfoot
  4. James Taylor
  5. Aerosmith
  6. Kiss
  7. Beach Boys
  8. Beatles
  9. Simon, with or without Garfunkel
  10. Don McLean
Ever notice how many of these ToT's reveal how dated I am? That's why Elton John is first on my list: I can only wish to be so durable.


  • There is some quality music in there! If we were all the same age and had the same sort of lives life would be very boring.

  • STILL GOING!!!!!!!!!!! I have your directions. My general plan is that I'll go to my brother's (in Merrimac) for early-ish dinner and then head to your house... I'm thinking I'll be there about 8. How's that sound?
